The Power of Microsoft 365
Since the 90’s, Microsoft’s tools have revolutionised our workplaces and allowed us to complete many vital work functions efficiently.
One of the most recognised organisations on the planet, the quality of Microsoft’s tools has solidified its reputation as one of the best platforms on the market. It is safe to say that almost everyone has used Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Publisher, and Outlook at some point in their lives!
Throughout this and the following article we will explore 365 in detail and uncover some of the reasons it is a good idea to start using the tools, if you aren’t already, and how – by using Cloud computing – you can drive your business forward to success with Microsoft 365 as a capable ally.
Why Microsoft 365?
Its tools’ abilities are unrivalled, both in ability and functionality, and businesses large and small across the globe rely on them every day. One of their most recent accolades – which the entire world has witnessed – was their ability to help businesses continue operating with no interruptions during the pandemic.
Microsoft Word has been around for quite some time now, and it has become one of the most commonly used programmes of its kind. It is a program that allows users to write down documents and complete written work. Over the years, it has become the most popular piece of software worldwide.
If you went to school in the early 2000’s, PowerPoint should bring back memories! This program allows you to design, create, and present your work to an audience. Since then, its popularity has only grown, and the updated features have helped it remain the hugely popular programme it is today.
As you are likely already aware, Excel is a spreadsheet program for businesses. It’s intended to organise data and perform financial analysis, but it can be used in many ways depending on your organisation’s size.
One of Microsoft’s most popular tools is Outlook. You probably already know what this application is – it is primarily used for sending and receiving emails. However, it can also be used to manage various types of personal information.
These are just a few of the best tools in the Microsoft suite, all of which have helped push Microsoft to the top.
Teams may only be young in comparison to others, but it has built quite the reputation, gained popularity, and has become a big part of many people’s daily lives. During the worst of the pandemic, many organisations relied heavily on Teams to make it through. A staggering 250 million people worldwide have embraced Teams because of its ability to appeal to everyone. Over 181 countries around the globe use Teams to promote collaboration, communication, and connectivity.
Document management and storage are integrated with SharePoint in 365. Information can be securely stored, organised, shared, and accessed from any device with a web browser. Since SharePoint is highly configurable, you can use it for a variety of purposes depending on your organisation’s needs.
You can manage your tasks anywhere, on any device, with To-Do, a Cloud-based task management application.
Planner is compatible with Microsoft Teams and SharePoint. Plans may be created, tasks assigned, and progress charts can be viewed.
